S100/S150 android 4.03 KoTiX rom v2.4 (with "keep user data" option) - UPDATED to rom v2.6

Here I am with another update of my 4.03 rom for the S100/S150 car dvd units.
The rom is based on the latest 06/06/2014 roadnav fw for I001 (nissan) but it include a file megane3.apk for the I145 model in the folder "winca\system\app" (just delete it if you don't need it).
In this firmware version and in the previous 05/20/2014 roadnav have finally fixed the "System Upgrade" function in the settings menu that was broken since they released the first official 4.03 fw; with this function it is possible now to avoid using the fused sd recovery and use a normal SD card (inserted in the dvd slot),to update the firmware.
Even more it's possible now, throught the aroma installer, to keep the user app and data when upgrading android! So no more hassle of redownloading and reinstalling you preferred apps, you'll keep all your settings as they were before the update.
NOTE:  just the units with "System Upgrade" function correctly working can use the "Don't erase user data" option.
I added a couple of more options to the installer:
- a "WIPE Menu"  to let you choose to format or not the data partition
- an option to preinstall or not the user apps from the folder "winca\app" in the sd.
For those who are new to my roms, here are the aroma installer options that you'll find:

1. MAIN MENU
  • Flash original full firmware (including BT, MCU etc..)
  • Flash KoTiX custom ROM 
  • Quit
2. ANDROID MENU
  • Install ROOT files
  • Install 160 DPI mod (using xposed and app setting)
  • Preinstall user apps from Winca\app sd folder 
3. MODDED APPS
  • Install KoTiX Radio player mod
  • Install Bluetooth app mod
  • Install Viper4Android
4. WIPE MENU
  • Format data partition (If unchecked it will erase dalvik-cache only)
  • Format internal Hard Disk
5. HARDWARE FLASH
  • Flash Bluetooth module
  • Write Flash.bin (vers. S00C)
  • Write MCU.bin (vers. N004)
UPDATE: I have removed the link to the old 2.4 rom and added the new 2.6 rom.
They are very similar because both are based on the same 06/06/2014 firmware, but 2.6 have some important fixes and some apps taken from even newer firmware August 01.

This is what you'll get:

- Keep apps and data function is working properly now so you can update the firmware without loosing your settings and datas
- Waze work fine
- Youtube work fine
- The bluetooth dialer now can download all contacts from phone without problems
- Switching from radio to third party players like jetaudio turn off the radio (to go back you need to pause the player)
- I added some new logos i found in new builds.
- I added an option to format internal sdcard in the aroma installer
- maybe other things...
 Here is the link to download the new 2.6 rom that include some extra apps too:

 S150 4.03 KoTiX_v2.6.rar   
Link removed to avoid people with new fw bricks their units.

Enjoy and if you like my work, please consider donating ;-)

  2. Hi kotix, I have the I052 unit in my rover 75 running android 2.3.4, can I just copy your latest 4.0.3 version 2.4 straight to the root of a normally formatted sd card and then run the system upgrade or do I have to use the fused sd card. Also will I have to edit the config file to suit the screen type by changing it from I001 to I052.

    thanks Mark

    1. You need a fused card to switch from 2.34 to 4.03 fw and of coarse replcae the i001 config files with the ones for your model.

  3. Hi KoTiX, why there are 2 car images (one image usual size and another a bit smaller) when open/close doors?
    Never seen this before.
    BTW - I removed Megane3.apk from app folder before flashing.

    Device S150 - I305

    Thanks,

    3. No, have already rolled back to the previous one..
      But I tried 2.4 with same MCU but different options in the AROMA installer.
      Looks like it depends on 'Install 160 DPI mod' choice. If not selected - it works as usual. If selected - there are two car images: the usual and the smaller one (modded?).

      BTW - option to keep user data did not work for me. Every user application restored after flashing keeps failing on startup with Android error.

  4. Hi KoTiX, Just wanted to say thank you for your hard work. I have successfully flashed this onto a S100 C035 unit with DVB-T. The freedom of choice outweighs the extra boot time. I have installed many multimedia apps,Movies,TVShows,Radio,Music with no issues. Sygic for navigation and a Xbox 360 controller with many emulators for the passengers entertainment. Thanks again and keep up the good work. Very much appreciated.

  6. Hi KoTix

    My question is because i don´t have my original firmware. Could I install
    this Update without my original firmware?

    The big problem is the white-screen start and when it starts up normally
    some of features are not working property.(like radio is searching always
    an other frequency,BT)
    I´m looking for just a Update to my Radio but i can`t find it, so this is
    the reason why i want to install an Android system.

    I have a C158 Model with the following system version:
    Os version:S100-uni20130829
    App version: S100-App- v1.18.7.0
    MCU Version: M00J S00B C158
    DVD Version: 3227 V100 7706
    BT: 20121204

    4. Thanks!
      I have two questions:
      1,in the i158 update which you sent, there is a chines txt where can i see the MCU and Flash numbers but this numbers are not the same what i have. Should i change it?
      2, What should I delete from your Android ROM, or should i copy it the hole i158 fw in config folder or just the config file from rar?

      Thanks a lot!

  7. Hi Kotix. I've installed your latest update and have also had the version before, the problem is that my GPS altitude keeps jumping to 0.

  9. Hi KoTix,

    We flashed the system succesfully. Still have some questions.
    Is it right that the canbus still not works for a Ford Focus 2011?
    We used the SetupXML update but when pressing OK we got the message Set the update.ini file failed. Do you know why?
    My MCU is C003. I assume that I have to choose I003-2 and LCD 5 (8"). Am I right?
    Thanks for your answers.

      Problem is solved, I copied all the folder iGo in my unit and from there start you off on the installation and now everything is ok. iGo now works perfectly and does not need me any more cards in the GPS slot. I think something is wrong with that slot and I do not know how to solve it, maybe you know how to eat properly checked or not.

  22. Hi Kotix,
    I recently upgraded my C045 unit to I045.
    At the first attempt I used your FW (edited to suit my unit) with aroma installer, but then I had no air condition controls display. After that I upgrade it with a modded original FW and everything works perfect.
    Then I try to root the device using your FW, I checked only a root option, but after the process was done I had no air condition display again.
    Is there any way to achieve a root only, without changing any other settings? Maybe some kind of standalone apk?

      The only other way to gain root is to use Baidu software:

    it only happened when i start the car.
    another thing, if i just turn the ignition on but not start the engine, the screen on the unit will come straight on, but if i turn the ignition all the way to start the engine, it took the unit about 10~15 second to come on, does this sounds normal to you?

  37. Hi kotix,

    First of all thank you very much for your great work.

    I have a little problem with the las version of android.

    I really need to play music using folders, because I have many mixes and it's confusing to play them using author or album options. So I decided to install an aplication called "EZ folder player free" wich works great. The problem is that this app only reproduced audio if the rom music aplication is running and play music, I mean, if I launch EZ, every app get muted, and I see how the music is playing, but there is no sound, and if I launch the rom music player and play a song, both music files sound at the same time, and if I pause the rom music player the EZ app get mute again, but still continue reproducing.

    It's like there is a channel or something like that for the musci player, and if the original music player doesn't "open the door" anything can't sound.

    Any solution? I'm gtting mad...

    Thank you

    1. Unfortunately that is a bug of all the 4.03 fw on this units.
      What i do normally to gain again the audio priority on third party players is to start the default player and pause it, or start video player and pause it.

  38. Hi Kotix, I am Zweistein, remember?
    I have installed from scratch your latest build V.2.4 on my Mazda CX-7 I097 winca, keeping no user data, all the app pack and the early working config for my model.
    Everything seems to work fine, apart some strange misbehaving on tv that I still have to investigate better.
    The only real problem anyway is that I have no verse to login into GooglePlay app, having no way to install and update apps.
    It aways responds "User and pass not match" on Existent account.
    WiFi/Tethering works fine and traffic is generated during login process, Logging through browser obviously works fine.
    My idea is that could be some incompatibility between Google services of the build or better, some charset issue which scramble password during login request to the server.
    Any other idea or solution?
    Many thanks in advance.

    1. Would you try this new version?: https://www.dropbox.com/s/mgqvivnmarl13ad/S150%204.03%20KoTiX_v2.6.rar?dl=0
      You can use the "don't wipe user data" function to keep your apps and stuff.
      It will update just the system folder including google play store and services.
      You don't need to flash mcu if you have no problems with it.

  39. Hello KoTiX, My name is Marcelo, My model is S150 Android I802, installed the S100 / S150 4.03 KoTiX android v2.4 rom. Stopped working the back button and menu. The key also does not work to change the color of the LEDs. I have the original firmware 4:03 (https://mega.co.nz/#!X9Z3kB6S!jvTMzYlUJQTOuEAcLxZNq2MLfeiRtDkM2pHfHVRtgMw) but this does not support my language (Portuguese Brazil). Can you help me?

  43. Hello,

    I have some questions:
    1) I believe my installation manual is not complete, someone could send me the diagram for me to check?
    2) How long should it take to boot S150 with Aroma 2.4? I believe the MEUI equipment is taking too long.
    3) there is some conexção with some help beyond the vehicle battery battery?
    4) someone is using 3G Dougle with the S150, if so, which model the Dougle?

    Grateful for the support,

    2. Try to be more clear with my questions:
      1) I believe that my S150 was mounted in the vehicle with the wrong connection. I think he takes too long to connect between 40s.Então 35s and I believe it should have something to keep him in a kind stand-by status. As I do not know personally someone who has another S150 is difficult to compare. So it would be interesting to see if (a) someone has the installation diagram to compare I (b) check for an internal battery to keep the S150 stand-by. So I have the following question: you have a diagram of the S150 installation? And you know if the S150 has an internal backup battery, or should I install?

      2) About 3G. I've tried various settings and various posts including the XDA site. Today I realize that the S150 realizes Modem, and even indicates the available operator, but it does not connect. The extranho is that I need to unplug and plug the 3G Dougle so that it recognizes the modem. When I turn the S150, it energizes the 3G Dougle, and I believe that at this time the modem is sending something to the S150, that being initializing discards information. Soon after he is booted, when I unplug and plug the modem it does not rule out the modem initialization information, and then recognizes the modem. But he still does not connect. I know that the PPP Widget can do this, but the process is getting a lot of work. Note: connect the S150, unplug and plug the modem and still boot the PPP Widget is a lot to keep calling every time you enter the car. Seen it, I wonder if anyone uses the 3G Dougle so we can talk about this problem.

      Can you help me with my problems?

  45. Dear KoTiX,
    First, I have to thank you for your work.
    I have installed your ROM on my car, Renault Megane II, and everything is fine.
    I have a problem with bluetooth I hope you can help me with.
    The problem is when I get a phone call, the caller name does not appear and I get "Unknown" although I have downloaded my phonebook to the head unit. If I open the bluetooth application and click on contacts, they are there. After doing that, I get the caller Name.
    So, I have to access the phonebook on the head unit once after startup.
    Can I do anything for it?
    Thanks a lot

  46. hi,
    i have had very strange thing while initiating the radio(e246) with the prepared fused and 2.6 version.
    sd in gps slot, turning on the radio, 15 seconds black screen, and then weird white on screen with fading effects and then strange colourful vertical strips appears at the right side of the screen. few beeps were sound and thats it. nothing else happen.
    (removing the sd from the slot and starting up the radio again boot to the wince like nothing happened.)
    have you encounter that kind of issue?
    would much appreciate your assistant.

    my system info is:
    os: s100-heb.a20140722-b2.2
    app: s100-app-v1.5.9.25
    mcu: t0nm s00e c246

    1. Is the sd fused correctly with correct bootloader?
      Did you make a double copy of the fw files in "winca" folder and root of sd?

    2. yes thats the strange thing about it.
      i have successfully re-layout and fuzed u-boot_udsd.bin
      copied the wince folder from you're firmware to sd root and another copy (of its content only) to sd root.
      modefied the asset and factory files to match my e246 and thats it.

      put my radio into bluetooth erased all connections.
      powered it off and put the sd into gps slot.
      and it seems that it doesn't entering the boot correctly.
      kind of drivers mismatch or i don't know what. those vertical colourful strip looks scary.

    3. i took the boot loader from your "S100 to S150 conversion. Convert the WinCE cardvd to Android." page.
      is there a different one that i might confused with?

    4. Is it possible this is due to my sd card capacity is 4gb?

      Delete
    5. The vertical lines that you see it's the MCU that is not initialized, what looks wierd to me is the mcu that you have now "t0nm". Maybe that mcu is configured to don't start if there is not the right bootloader (I'm just supposing it) but what is really dangerous is that if you don't have the right android mcu to flash on your unit and you flash the wrong one, you'll surely brick it.
      The bootloader is fine, capacity is ok too.
      I wouldn't risk more...

    10. i'm just thinking how to bypass my issue,
      since I know that other e246 manage to successfully install android on their devices,
      i'm trying to figure out what is the difference between their device and mine,
      as far as I concern, there are only two differences: 1. application version 2. mcu version.
      hence application v
      ersion cannot determine success or failure during flash (this is what flash does, flashing the application version), i only left with MCU version issue. which I think that maybe the MCU version is protecting the unit from being flash by boot loader.

      this is why i'm trying to figure out a way to bypass this protection.
      and i thought that maybe if I will succeed to flash my unit with an older version for wince and mcu,
      then the protection won't be applied (just like other owners of c246), and then I would be able to convert it into Android as for the normal method

      what do you think?a

      Delete
    11. This is what i think: winca is somehow blocking the use of fused sd cards in android, maybe they are doing the same on wince. I can see that your unit is pretty new (july 22) and have a 2.2 bootloader.
      Maybe this bootloader prevent fused sd from booting and so maybe you are right that if you are able to downgrade to a lower version of wince bootloader first, then you could boot to android after that.
      Before you do anything i suggest you to find your original wince fw, an older wince fw like 1.10.7 and the original i246 android fw; once you have them you should be safe enought to make your tryes.
      Good luck.

  48. Hi Kotix,

    When I try to flash the system it starts up with verifing and unpacking the software but the screen does not show anything. When I push the reset button and hold it it shows the process. During the process you must press next next etc. But during the mcu installer the system hangs. With the original installer of the 4.0 android it goes smoothly and during the mcu installer the screen is up again. But with the orignal I have no steering wheels etc.
    Back to WinCE is also a problem because during the install you have to calibrate the screen.
    Do you know why the screen is blank and light up while holding the reset button?

    Regards,

    Stronk

    1. I guess you have tryed the new 9/11 firmware, right?
      winca have kind of blocked the fused sd procedure.
      To be able to install wince avoiding the touchscreen calibration, simply edit the file update.xml and set to "false" the tag related to Touch calibration.

    2. Tnx. I will try that.
      I was using your android installer and a original 4.0 one, everything worked but I could not find a good working navi so I decided to flash the system back to the original wince 1.1.9 and also 1.2.9.18. A flashed it many times but since this week I've got a blank screen during the process.

  50. Hi KoTIX,

    maybe you can help me a little bit...I've been using your great custom rom v2.6 for a while, but because of not workin' my bluetooth phonebbok I finally switched to the latest official I001 firmware build no. IML74K-20140902 form carnaviplayer.com (https://mega.co.nz/#!G0QXSZ6Y!SNqDxB7i_BADPUVmDJdzT36Hozm5KPNfg_wtk9We7FM)
    Now my bluetooth phonebook works just fine but there is a problem with GoogleServicesFramework and other google apps - they don't work. I cannot instal the apk from PlayStore and any other version of apk downloaded elswhere. There's constant error "Incompatible with other application(s) using the same shared user ID"
    I can do nothing about it because of no root access - how can I root the firmware? And is there any solution to fix this annoying issue?

    Maybe in near future you can publish a new version of your rooted, fixed KoTIX rom based on that version o firmware? Would be great! I miss your modded FM Radio.apk as well.

    Thanks for any help in advance! I appreciate your work!

  57. Ciao Kotix ho scaricato il tuo custom firmware ROM 2.6, ho sostituito la tua cartella "config" con la mia per l'unità I140 (ma non quella all'interno di "update_s150A"). Ora dovrei aggiornare. Premetto che ho Android 2.3.4 di fabbrica e l'opzione "system update" funzionante nelle impostazioni. Potresti darmi una dritta?

    1. if you have a newer fw from after july 2014 you can simply put the sd in the gps slot and power on, if it's prior july, you have to go to settigns->system upgrade.
      you don't need a fused sd card if you are already on android 4.03

    2. Hi Kotix, I put sd in the gps slot and i powered it on, nothing happened, the screen just went black, and I waited for a while and steel nothing happened, so now it's just a black screen and my unit is not working anymore.

  81. Hola, estoy intentando instalar este firmware, pero no lo consigo.
    He descomprimido el .rar y lo he copiado en una tarjeta microSD previamente formateada. El dispositivo tiene dos ranuras para microSD, una para los mapas del navegador de wince (también se utiliza para instalar android) y otra para datos. He probado en las dos ranuras y he pulsado la opción de actualizar el sistema. Si está en la ranura de datos se reinicia y no cambia nada, y en la otra ranura se queda la pantalla en negro durante mucho tiempo (lo he dejado entre 10 y 15 min) y nada.
    ¿Podrías echarme una mano?

    Muchas gracias de antemano.
    Saludos.

    2. También he probado como cuando instalé android (meter la tarjeta y luego encender), y nada. Se inicia como normalmente.

    3. En la tarjeta SD tiene que aver la carpeta "winca" con todos los archivos y la carpeta "config" del tu modelo, pone la tarjeta en el slot DVD y hace "System upgrade" desde los settings.
      Si va a enstalar mi rom, al empezar de el aroma installer tiene que seleccionar "Custom Install"

    4. Muchas gracias por tu ayuda Kotix,

      he creado la microSD con la imagen que tenia y le he pegado tu carpeta winca, después he modificado el archivo ADSet.xml con el modelo de mi radio y listo. Todo funcionando OK excepto al pasar los contactos del movil (galaxy S3).

      En términos generales me parece mas estable y más fluida que la que tenia antes.
      Saludos.
